Wine Description

Cupcake Vineyards winery is located in Soledad, California, where warm days give way to cool nights as the fog rolls in off of the Pacific Ocean. It is this cooling influence that slows the growing process, increasing the time the grapes “hang” on the vine and thereby allowing the grapes to mature a little slower than in hotter regions. Slow growth and cool weather leads to a more balanced level of acids and sugars, thereby adding to the complexity and structure of the wines of the Central Coast. This region is poised to become one of the newest and most exciting viticultural opportunities in the coming years.
